Bellapierre – Shimmer Powder in Celebration

Bellapierre – Shimmer Powder in Celebration

I’ve had this Bellapierre Shimmer Powder in coppery Celebration for months now, but it’s taken me until now to get round to writing about it. Bellapierre is a UK brand who produce 100% natural mineral cosmetics. Firstly – what is mineral make-up? It is make-up made from naturally occuring minerals that are found in the earth. These minerals are ground up into fine particles and used to make powders, foundations and other products. These minerals provide coloured pigments, and also sun prote­ction and anti-inflammatory effects. All of Bellapierre’s products are based on natural ingredients and are paraben-free. These Shimmer Powders have multiple uses – I have been using this one as eyeshadow and eyeliner, but they can also be sprinkled on wet nail varnish to give the nails some sparkle, mixed with lip gloss or lipstick to make a lip colour or dabbed on the ends of lashes straight after applying mascara to add some colour to the lashes. This Celebration shade would also look great added to body lotion to create a...

Latest In Beauty – Editor’s Picks Collection

Latest In Beauty – Editor’s Picks Collection

Last week I ordered the Editor’s Picks Collection box from Latest In Beauty and I’m so glad I did! I have to say it’s the best beauty box I’ve seen for a while, and I love the fact that you can see what’s inside it before you order it, unlike some other beauty box schemes. The Editor’s Picks Collection contains 10 items – some full size and some sample size – all hand-picked by Latest In Beauty to help make you look fabulous. Here is a closer look at my box… The products all come nestled on shredded tissue paper inside a nice simple black box with the Latest In Beauty logo printed on the lid. The box lid was a little bit squashed and marked when it arrived, and I have to say I don’t like the packaging as much as I like the way Glossybox package their items, but having said that it is all about the products inside. So, what was inside? The first item is...

Bellapierre – Super Gloss in Raspberry

Bellapierre – Super Gloss in Raspberry

I recently received my May Glossybox and nestled inside it was this lovely Raspberry Super Gloss lipgloss from UK brand Bellapierre who produce 100% natural mineral cosmetics. I was really pleased to see that Glossybox are promoting natural make-up brands. Firstly – what is mineral make-up? It is make-up made from naturally occuring minerals that are found in the earth. These minerals are ground up into fine particles and used to make powders, foundations and other products. These minerals provide coloured pigments, and also sun prote­ction and anti-inflammatory effects. All of Bellapierre’s products are based on natural ingredients and are paraben-free. Bellapierre Super Gloss is a great lipgloss, it’s not too thick or sticky. Although the Raspberry colour looks rather dark in the tube it is very sheer on the lips with a nice shine and no shimmer, and it tastes of raspberry too which is nice. In the photo below I have applied a thin coat of the Super Gloss on its own, but you can build it up to give more colour or apply it over...
